PROJECT
BRIEF

Increase space and light and modernise a charming cottage home. Improve appearance and ensure better flow and light throughout the house.

PROJECT
INFORMATION

  • Location: Leicestershire
  • Sector: Residential house extension and renovation
  • Client: Private Client

Impressive and sympathetic cottage extensions to create a modern home using oak and natural materials.

CHALLENGES

The beautiful cottage came with a challenging, existing layout including small rooms and disconnected out buildings. Our design needed to marry practical needs with beautiful aesthetics, respecting the charm of the original cottage.

OUR SOLUTION

We created light and space and unlocked the potential of the cottage by reconfiguring the existing floor plan and adding stunning contemporary oak frame extensions to both the front and back of the property.

By incorporating the existing outbuildings and improving the flow around the property, we have created modern and open plan living spaces, maximising the light and the views over the garden. The converted annex studio apartment echoes the design of the main house, creating a unified scheme.
